The 54th Annual WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival officially opened for entries August 15th!

WorldFest offers competition for Shorts, Documentaries, Feature Films, Music Videos, Experimental & Student Films on the Silver Screens of the wonderful Memorial City Cinemark Theatres, with over 1,000 international filmmakers attending the 10-day International Film Festival from 75 Nations!

 

The year 2020 will go down in history as the strangest year in all our memory! After 53 years, we had to postpone the festival, and we are still trying to find screening dates in late 2020. But with theatres not re-opening, we do not know. Happily, our 10 International Juries managed to finish all their work, and we have been able to send out Remi Awards to winners all over the world! Our awards makers have been closed, so it has been a very slow process getting all the elements! Our Remi Winners have been wonderful in helping with the postage for their awards, as we lost more than $250,000 in VIP Sponsorships! No Festival, No Check!

 

This is America’s Discovery Film Festival – We’re Fiercely Independent!

Competition in 10 major categories with 200 sub-categories to ensure you are judged with your peers for the chance to win a coveted Remi Award!

 Ten great days in April, at the beautiful Memorial City Cinemark Theatres. Here’s a taste of what WorldFest-Houston has waiting for you: see your film on a big screen; network with filmmakers from 75 countries; enjoy the Festival Club every night at our headquarters hotel, the Memorial City Westin/Marriott, parties at the VIP Hotel Zaza, walk the Red Carpet; attend more than 200 new film Premieres; learn at 9 Master Classes on filmmaking, from Drone Photography to using Free NASA stock footage; enjoy the VIP Police Escort Tour of NASA & Rocket Park; treat yourself to some delicious Texas BBQ & Beer as you meet the gregarious Skippers at The Houston Yacht Club/Consular Regatta before taking in the Closing Night Film to wrap up the 2021 Festival! 

See the largest survey in North America of New Asian Independent & major studio films with emerging Asian Filmmakers attending our remarkable 7th Annual Panorama Asia, the largest Major Spotlight on Asian Cinema in the film festival world!

 

Enjoy great new films from Italy in our 16th Annual Panorama Italia, with the Italian Directors in person to intro the film and meet the audience! 

 

All at the 54th WorldFest-Houston Intl Film Festival, April 16-25, 2021.

Alexander Tuschinski’s poignant film about Gerda’s childhood during the turbulent time of WWII depicts her love of music and her eventual ability to craft songs which helped her create a life of joy in spite of tragic surroundings.
